UK Higher Surgical Training Orthopaedic Deaneries - Trainee Questionnaire
Dear Colleague,

We are creating an online resource,, that displays useful information about all UK Higher Surgical Training Orthopaedic Deaneries / Rotations. This will help those applying for specialist training to make a more informed decision.

We would greatly appreciate your time to complete this questionnaire. Please give as much detail as possible.

In return, we will provide you with a certificate of participation in a National Quality Improvement Project, and also the opportunity to be cited on the website.

Best Wishes,

Mr Michael Flatman, Core Surgical trainee
Mr Amit Chawla, ST3 Trauma and Orthopaedics
Mr James Dalrymple, ST4 Trauma & Orthopaedics
Mr Alex Trompeter, Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon
